Please read the documentation of these flags that you
can obtain by
lilypond -dhelp

As far as I can understand, the idea is that if you use
lilypond -dlog-file foo.ly
(which is equivalent to lilypond -dlog-file=#t foo.ly )
then LilyPond should produce a file foo.log.
However, as you have noticed (even though you didn't
really use the flag correctly), no such file is produced,
so there seems to be a bug here.

When I try to compile a file foo.ly the -dlog-file switch fails. There
are two modes of failure.

$ lilypond -dlog-file=log foo.ly
compiles cleanly but no log file is produced.

If I change the name of the log file to foo.log an error is produced:

   $ lilypond -dlog-file=foo.log foo.ly
     GNU LilyPond 2.10.16
     ERROR: Unbound variable: foo.log

I have only tested this behaviour with 2.10.16.
